NFL 2018 Season

Recommended Posts

Watch all the "All or Nothing" Amazon Prime docs (season documentaries), funnily enough the Rams are the team in the second of three seasons which will give you a good appreciation for the ex set up in St Louis, the move back to LA and a lot of the current players including Goff n Gurley. If you like them then the Hard Knocks seasons on SKY is worth a watch (essentially pre season training).

The easiest way I found to gather interest a few years back was to simply put on RedZone on a Sunday night and watch all the days action unfold, we'll have to wait until September for that though. 

There's the NFL Timeline on Amazon which I also liked, goes back to all the big points in NFL history, even an episode on the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. 😛 

Get yourself involved with the fantasy league we do, that keeps up interest and their app is a cracking one for keeping tab on scores and players doing the biz! @BurtonRam7

Thanks very much, I’ll look into it.

@BurtonRam7 I get 90% of my news on the Rams from this message board

There's a number of VERY knowledgable posters plus a couple who are bang up to date with Rams news and post links.

I don't post as often as I used to because over the last 2 years the admins have gone a bit over the top with deleting stuff and banning people and some of my favorite posters, a number of whom I've met at games, either left or got banned.

If you do join I'm RamUK. There's even a Leeds fan on there who goes by the name of YorkiePud.

And obviously NFL.com is pretty good just for straight news rather than chat.

@Nuwtfly Which game are you going to? Is it in Philly? I'm going to make a Rams game this year and toying with the Eagles game in December. Lovely time of year weather-wise and a guaranteed win 😬

I'm going to the game at Wembley, mate. They're playing the Jags on the 28th.

First of all @Nuwtfly booooo!

Next @BurtonRam7 others have suggested some good options. A couple of things I do (as a Giants fan). I follow a couple of the local beat writers on twitter, as they tend to have scoops or links to the team and latest news. Another way is to literally search “LA Rams” into google and click on the ‘news’ tab. It will bring up loads of articles.

For general NFL, I listen to the ‘Around the NFL’ podcast which is twice a week and check in with the NFL app a couple a times a week to keep up.

lastly, assuming interest is high again, we will do another fantasy draft this year. I found it a good way to find out about other teams and players, and keeps me invested during the season

@r4derby ran it last year if I remember rightly. Still got a fair few weeks for the season to start so it won’t be anytime soon, just keep your eyes peeled in here and the inevitable thread for it when it gets going. There will be plenty of notice.

I've organised a league the last couple of years @thederbyram. @Srg also ran a league on ESPN as well. If the interest is there, I am more than happy to set up another league for this season. We will probably draft late in August though, a week or so before the league season starts to avoid people drafting players now who get season ending injuries/suspensions over the next few weeks.

Show of hands - who is interested in an NFL Fantasy league? I will set it up tomorrow and then put the details on here. We can decide draft details in a separate thread when the league is active.
